Karen is an amazing professor! She is very thorough, extremely knowledgable, and wants to help you improve your French. This class was reading-heavy and, as the name suggests, analysis heavy. We spent a significant amount of time learning/going over analysis techniques.Since this was the first year the course was offered, it will probably change a little, but the course was broken into units based on type of literature (poetry, prose, theatre). I would strongly suggest this class to anyone looking to work on their literature analysis or improve their French writing and reading. It's a great intermediate class if you want to get your French skills polished a bit before jumping into more intense literature/film classes. I would also strongly recommend this class just for the professor -- Karen is really kind and funny.


In class midterm, in class final, 2 in class analysis presentations, a few short compositions (all very manageable!!)
